Review
When's the last time you played this one? This used to be a very popular map until the "balanced" GD2 came out. Really a very different animal altogether. On this one most units can roll or stroll right over the hill and building on the opponents side is not unusual. This is an ARM v CORE battle which always adds interest for me. Also there are no rules which plague its successor nowadays. :) I almost didn't review this because the outcome seemed so obvious early and I figured it might bore you. Newer players could learn a lot from Wargod2v's early game. He takes ground very quickly, gets his resources straight and is all up in Russian's world. And he's CORE, which makes that all the more impressive. Russian forgoes the usual aggressive ARM style and makes few flash, mostly used for defense. Wargod goes punisher crazy and pumps storms and gators keeping Russian pressed for resources and space. Russian loses some guardians but uses them well in the later stages of game. To be honest I'm not sure how Russian didn't get steamrolled and the game advances to a BB v Timmy battle?!?! Wargod sez Rus was lucky, Rus sez it was skill...You decide :P These guys each make a few, some are lost, some survive. Wargod does some nice offscreen bombing to kill Russian's bb, meanwhile building another timmy. Both players made some mistakes but they are vets and at +3 speed it was a pretty fun watch :)
